What is e-commerce?

E-commerce is exactly as the name suggests, "electronic commerce." Any business, person, or animal (looking at you, Geico Lizard) who sells any product or service, via digital means, engages in e-commerce. A significant chunk of the e-commerce pie is "e-tail" -- a.k.a., virtual storefronts. Amazon and other online selling platforms open to third-party participation are a huge part of the e-tail model.

E-commerce Laws

Online sellers and marketers are subject to the same laws, rules, and regulations as every business and promoter in the United States. In addition, they must comply with statutes that directly affect digital aspects of the e-commerce ecosystem, including the (to name just a few) the: Can-SPAM Act, Anticybersquatting Consumer Protect Act (ACPA),Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), and Dot Com Disclosures.

E-commerce operations must also adhere to platforms' terms. Amazon, eBay, Jet, and other online retail hubs have very specific rules and noncompliance could result in account suspension.
